Cloudy gold, just a finger of dying white head on mine.

A previous description of old pretzels is apt for the nose - like those that may have been at the bar for a few weeks.

Led by a predominant yeasty sourness, do we really need to go further? The wheat is there, but comes through dry, like have to separate the grain from the chaff with your tongue - this isn't fun.

The taste being as it is, the carbonation doesn't matter much, though it overly pops the tongue.

Parched in the desert? This is ok. Otherwise? Look elsewhere.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2.5

poured from a bottle into a goblet

clear straw color before the bottle swirl, which caused it to be a little opaque, but the yeast never settled

smells like sour pretzels and funky bread

taste is mostly sour and a bit bready -- as a general rule, I don't add fruit to my beer, but I think a lemon might add some sweetness that this beer needs

the mouthfeel is really good. crisp and clean with a dry finish, which makes it easy drinking

overall, it tastes very sour to me and overall seems very average. I wouldn't go out of my way for this one

My coworker is signed to a beer of the month club and was kind enough to share this with me.
This pour hazy yellow with a rock white head.

There is a crispy kind of sharpness with soft wheat and citrus hops aroma at first in the with moderat sulfar note that diminishes after a couple of minutes.

Moderate wheat flavor with a moderate hop bitterness both lasting into the crisp finish. There is a medium-low citrus hops flavor in there as well

This has a medium light body with a medium-high level of carbonation.

This is an easy to drink refreshing beer. It's too bad the nose is off for the first couple of minutes but the flavor is just fine.

this is a bit unconventional, and my first nebraska brew! pours a moderately hazy pale pale straw color with a jovial white head. smells very lemony, rind and juice, almost from concentrate smell. also nice fresh wheat malt that imparts a nice bready aroma, and a clever yeast with a touch of spice. the flavor is very lemon forward, tart and crisp, perfect for summer. the yeast ties it all together in a fruity flavorful ribbon, and it totally works. super easy drinking with a light body and intense carbonation. i was impressed with this and will have to visit the brewery next time through. solid summer drink.
